Writing a will is a legitimate way of giving the valuable assets and possessions of a deceased to its heirs or beneficiaries. If one fails to make a will and pass away while being a resident in the UAE, many undesirable things can happen such as frozen bank accounts (single or joint), canceled dependent visas, etc. The UAE courts will apply the Sharia Inheritance Law that will govern the distribution of assets.  As a result,

– Wife receives 1/8th of the total asset.

– Mother and father get 1/6 each.
